Simple to access, be careful it's a good climb and you preferably need suitable shoes. Magnificent view of the top of the keep. (free) parking also

Accessible in 10-15 minutes from Bramevaque. A little steep at first, stroller to avoid. Nice little castle, you can climb to the top, free, hardly see anyone in July.

Quiet, beautiful views and a 2.5km forest trail to Mauleon Barousse. We parked in Bramevaque village, explored the chateau and then walked to Mauleon Barousse for a cold beer.

Lovely, short walk around the well-maintained historic ruin.

The view is beautiful, the walk short but pulls on the thighs! It goes up and the path is steep. To do !

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
